BJF Announces Fun Run Logo Finalists

Congratulations to our two finalists, Cecily Cooper and Eliana Monahan in the Boulder Jewish Festival Fun Run logo competition.

This year the Boulder Jewish Festival is kicking things off with a Family Fun Run.  “We are hoping this will become a new annual tradition.”  Says Elizabeth Barrekette, the Executive Director.  “For the past several years we have had a few folks suggest a fun run at the Festival.  We like to keep things fresh and new so we thought let’s give it a go.”   The Festival doesn’t officially start until 11:00 am on Sunday June 4th, but the Run will start with a bagel breakfast at 10:15 am provided by Moe’s Bagels, Ozo Coffee, Eldorado Spring Water and King Soopers.  With some music by Jeff & Paige to warm things up, the runners will be off at 10:30 for the half-mile course.  The finish line is the Festival stage where the kids and Jeff & Paige will officially open the 23rd annual Boulder Jewish Festival.

The logo competition was an effort to get the community involved.  “We are a volunteer organization and needed the help of our community kids to design the logo for the t-shirts,” says Monet Rodriguez-Stoneman, the Fun Run coordinator.   “We got dozens of entries – it was a really hard choice.”  According to Melissa Vargas, the Marketing Director for the Festival, “We loved the ‘have fun and run’ inspiration of Eliana’s entry, and the vibrancy and Jewish inspired Shabbat candles on Cecily’s entry.  They are all winners but it might have to come down to which logo transfers best onto t-shirt materials.”
